Thanks Chuck, it's an improvement. I don't have any screenshots on how my classifieds used to look on 3.8, but I'm fairly sure you could see all the table borders around the ads, columns etc. I am not sure why mine don't display anymore, as I think they would help a lot to make the ads look clearer.
My theme is stock vb4 with only minor colour changes. I also think a way to reduce the amount of preview text would be good too.
